Subsidy Breeding Places. TRACK received subsidy for the renovation works of the building from Broedplekken, an initiative that aims to support unique places in Brussels where organizations from different sectors want to collaborate by sharing a newly designed physical space.

September 2022 - January 2024: Renovation works

The former train museum was fully renovated within a circular philosophy

October 2022-January 2023 

Together with the resident organisations, we built the framework of the project: over a period of 4 months, we agreed on a value framework, mission, activity program, and role division. This all resulted in the development of our intermediate report. Later a graphic identity and website followed.

May 2023: The space got a name! TRACK 

At the same time, some activities of in-between use were already set up, waiting patiently for the renovation works to end.
